THE WORLD TELEVISION AWARDS

THE WORLD TELEVISION AWARDS

With the aim of recognizing the crucial role played by media in promoting the awareness of the audience on major issues such as cultural diversity, religious understanding, tolerance and peace, the World TV Award was initiated in 2004 on two themes "Religious Understanding" and "Conflict Resolution" on Category Humanity.

In 2011, AIBD launched the World TV Award Category on Science & Environment, in collaboration with United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

From 2013, Category Humanity topics are replaced by "Natural Disaster" and "Children's Rights".

The World TV Awards are open to broadcasters worldwide from public, private sector and freelance producers.
